What is a Brazilian wax?
Brazilian bikini waxes have been popular since the late 90s. Brazilian waxing was introduced to New York in 1987 by seven Brazilian-born sisters.
Today Brazilian waxing has superseded conventional bikini waxing as the preferred option. Apart from the trendiness of Brazilian waxing, it has also gained a following due to the after effects of the treatment, with many commenting on the feeling of improved personal hygiene and tidiness of the region.
So how does it differ from a regular bikini wax? With a Brazilian, generally all the hair is removed in the front pubic region, back and everything in between. Some clients prefer to leave a fine strip down the middle.
- You will be provided with a disposable 'g-string" to wear throughout the treatment.
- Waxing includes both the front and back. Don't be concerned about being put into awkward positions as there is no need for this to happen (you will lie on your back then lie on your front).
- Stray hairs will be tweezed on the completion of the waxing and a soothing lotion is applied.
- Ask your Caci therapist about the take home, after care products to minimise any ingrown hairs.
For the first 12-24hrs avoid the following:
- Swimming in clorinated pools
- Spa pools
- Sunbed (do not expose the area to sunlight)
- Highly perfumed products
- Spray tanning
